You are most likely hearing metal on metal on the brake pads. The brakes are not attached to the gear shift in any way. Unless those Koreans have done some really wierd design.

Don't have the keys how do I shift into neutral on the 2005 Kia Spectra


There is a special tiny cover that needs popped out next to the shifter. After the cover is pooped out you need a slender screwdriver to depress the shifter release switch.

2003 kia spectra starts won't shift out of park


On many newer cars there is a locking mechanism that prevents the shifter from being taken out of the PARK position if the brake is not depressed. This may be the problem. On vehicles that have this there is usually an override mechanism (usually some recessed button on the shift console) that can be pressed to release the shifter. It should be mentioned in the users manual. The image below shows the locking mechanism (16). I have read that there is a small cap on the shifter body you can remove and under it is a button you press to release the shifter. This will work until you can affect repairs.

Got a 2007 kia spectra and put the key ignition and you cant turn it. wheel locked but has sum play in it.


Make sure the car is FULLY in park. The ignition will be locked into one position if the gear shifter is between gears. While holding the brake on as if you were starting the car, pull the steering wheel as far right as you can and use some muscle to hold it with one hand and then try to turn the key to on. If this is not working try holding the steering wheel all the way to the left and repeat the exercise.

I have a 2002 kia spectra, i was driving when it just stopped going forward, it starts fine but when i put it in reverse or drive it doesn't do anything. I was told it was the chain linkage, torque...


When you put the car in gear, do you feel it trying to move in any gear? usually if one gear goes you still have the others. I would make sure the shifter linkage is hooked up and in the right position. Not saying the trans could be bad but it's a lot cheaper to check the other (possibilities) before the trans. and torque convertor. I would even try changing the fluid and filter.

2002 Kia Spectra stuck gear shift


Sounds like you need a new shifter assembly, or the brake switch. Most likely will be the shifter though if you can move it out of park with the override.

Inhibitor switch


eh , Automatic transaxel Range (TR) switch , can also be referred to as the Inhibitor Switch , personally i would call it the neutral safety switch , anyway you can find the "inhibitor" switch on top left side of transaxel , it goes over the shifter shaft coming out of the trans where the shifter cable bolts onto . Looks like a 1/4 of a circle . cheers mate

I have a 2003 Kia and mine did this same thing. They replaced some switch in the brake and gear shifter. It hasn't had a problem since.
